on to lose and then ronald reagan who went on to win two terms. now, george w. bush while i have a lot of criticisms of him in my book, was definitely somebody who was somewhat influenced by the conservative movement and had some movement conservatives in his administration as his father did. but he was not really himself a philosophically small government kind of guy. and i agree that a big problem in terms of actual conservatives winning the republican nomination is the fact that a lot of the conservatives who would be qualified or who are seen as qualified to be president come from, you know, rural districts, or they come from southern states, and there becomes more of a regional and cultural battle in the minds of a lot of people. and i think the other problem is that frequently what ends up happening is that the conservative candidate who appeals most to grassroots conservatives in the republican primaries -- and here i'm just talking about presidential primaries -- tends to be the candidate, the conservative who doesn't have the organization or the money to really go the distance
